Aquarius Individual Fashion Sense

Some call us weird, others call us wonderful. Many people we are inventive and quirky, and we are!

I am not so into Zodiac signs anymore, unlike when I was a lot younger. But I do know quite a lot about Zodiac signs and their meanings, especially mine which is Aquarius. I tick most of the Aquarius boxes. I am the humanitarian and philanthropist of the zodiac. We Aquarius do not shy away from lending a helping hand when needed. We are passionate, unconventional, independent and we have the need to express our ingenuity, which is why I blog I guess. Fashion and Style Police is a creative outlet for me, and it has changed my life for the better. It is definitely one of the best things that ever happened to me.

Being an Aquarius also explains a lot of things about my life, my personality and what makes me tick. It also explains my fashion sense. I have been doing some reading of fashion in general, and why we like certain styles. Why specific designs and pieces appeal to some and not others. And I have come to realise that our zodiac signs could play a role in our fashion sense.

 

So what is the Aquarius Individual Fashion Sense all about?

Unconventional and Original

The Aquarius personal style is usually unconventional and very original. We are usually free-spirited when it comes to fashion, which is why we tend to wear pieces in different ways. Having an original fashion sense is amazing, as there is never a dull fashion moment for a fashionista Aquarius chic. The possibilities are endless in the styling department.

Predict Trends

The Aquarius woman has the forward thinking gift, which is amazing when put to fashion and style use. Aquarians can predict fashion trends well in advance and can play around with various styles in the pursuit of the perfect look.

The talented fashion designer Mary Quant predicted trends well in advance. She invented the mini-skirt, creating a uniform for the 1960s women’s lib movement. But she forever gives credit to her clients.

“It was the girls on the King’s Road who invented the mini. I was making easy, youthful, simple clothes, in which you could move, in which you could run and jump, and we would make them the length the customer wanted. I wore them very short and the customers would say, ‘Shorter, shorter.’”

Why Sustainable Fashion Matters

Many people are unaware of the level of pollution the fashion industry contributes on a daily basis. You may be consciously living the sustainable lifestyle but so long as you patronize the fashion industry. You also participate in its pollution activities. Which is why sustainable fashion is the topic of today.

The fashion industry is the second largest polluter in the world after the oil and gas sector. It’s hard to believe as no one would have suspected that clothes and accessories could be such an environmental hazard.

How Does Fashion Affect the Environment?

Pollution from the fashion industry is a result of processing the raw materials to turn them into the clothes we buy from the stores. For example, a lot of dye is used to produce denim. Some of the processing plants are located near water bodies and the dye gets washed into the water. This makes the water unfit for drinking and for water life. The fish die or get infected. In the long run, as the end consumers in the food chain, we get affected too.

The harsh chemicals used to process leather and denim is the cause of medical challenges for workers in those factories. These workers are in direct contact with the chemicals and bear the brunt of the prolonged exposure to the chemicals at the expense of their lives.

As bad as this may sound manufacturers are not the only ones who are guilty of pollution in the fashion industry. Research has shown that an average person uses a clothing item 7 times before it’s thrown away. Can you image that? Those who are diligently into recycling don’t think of recycling clothing.

Sustainable fashion not only helps to protect the environment but also helps to protect the lives of those who take part in processing it. It requires a conscious and collective effort to completely eliminate or reduce the harm the fashion industry can cause to the ecosystem. It is important to get involved because at the end of the day we all get affected.

The good news is that eco-friendly textile are being produced and developed to make clothes that are safe and sustainable. They are making a god alternative to their destructive counterparts.

 

What Role Can You Play to Support Sustainable Fashion?

There is a lot you can do to support sustainable fashion. Don’t throw away clothes that you no longer use. You can donate, sell or recycle those clothes instead. Another way is to repurpose those clothing items. Some people have been able to convert their old jeans to cute tote bags and old shirts to trendy tops. Patronize eco-friendly brands. Do a bit of research on which brands are engaging in sustainable practices.

The negative effects the fashion industry has to the ecosystem may sound surprising and even frightening. But this should not be the reason why you should throw all your clothes, shoes and bags away. If you want to support sustainable fashion, transition into a sustainable lifestyle gradually.

Take baby steps like recycling clothes, purchasing one eco-friendly clothing item at a time, or be more creative with your old clothes. Whatever you choose to do to help make this transition is a step in the right direction.

Style Icon – Coleen Rooney

I have admired Coleen Rooney for as long as I have known her. She is a very pretty and elegant lady. Quite the opposite of a typical WAG, if am being honest. And I love that about her. Her fashion sense WOWS me every time, and I think our personal style is quite similar. I remember reading her book – Welcome to my World, in 2007 and being blown away by the story of her life. Herself and Wayne Rooney are definitely not overnight successes.

Coleen Rooney is not your typical footballer wife. She is like another Victoria Beckham in her own right, with her successful business. She is not living under the shadow of her successful footballer husband and I admire her for that. It would have been tempting to just relax and play WAG.

Rooney’s Style

Coleen Rooney loves the relaxed chic look, and I can see why. It looks amazing on her and suits her personality. As the wife of a footballer and a mother to 3 boys, her relaxed style is great for school football tours with her boys, or watching Wayne Rooney play a football match live. This stylish mother of 3 soon to be 4, looks real and fabulous at the same time.

I came across an interview she had with Liverpool Echo, and I enjoyed reading it. Here are some excerpts from the interview –

 

Q: You’re now a style icon to lots of women, but whose style do you admire?

A: It is nice for me when people say ‘oh I like what you wore’ and now what I really love is when girls come up and tell me that they’ve just ordered something from my collection.

I haven’t seen anyone wearing it yet, but it’s still early so I think maybe I’ll start to see more and more and when I do I’ll just have a little smile to myself.

I don’t really have one style icon. I tend to take bits and bobs from looks and then try to put my own mark on them. I think if I had to choose one it would be Audrey Hepburn, because her style was just so elegant and classic, the simple black dress in Breakfast at Tiffany’s was really beautiful. I try to choose things that I know, when I look at them in a few years’ time, I’ll still think ‘oh I really like that.’ Someone now I like is Blake Lively from Gossip Girl, I like the fashion choices she makes.
